“Trent ascended the stairs, stepping lightly on the creaky wood panels to avoid putting a foot through the floor. He slid the key into the lock and twisted the knob. The hinges creaked as the door swung open, the knob pulling from his hand as if someone on the other side yanked it from his grasp…..
He peered inside. Hollow darkness greeted him. Haunting. A shiver ran down his spine, and it wasn’t from the chilling winter air whispering through the trees. The whole scene creeped him out.”
Second Chance Spirit: A Ghostly Paranormal Romance is the second book in the Haunted Ever After series by Carrie Pulkinen. This is a superb paranormal romance- with ghosts, paranormal + supernatural elements, danger, mystery, tension, wonderful characters, chemistry, and a whole lot of sizzle.
Trent Austin, whom we met in book one- being the best friend of Logan, has just inherited a dilapidated estate from his recently deceased Uncle. The old Victorian mansion certainly has a creepy, menacing vibe- and Trent couldn’t wait to get rid of it.
Tina Saunders, whom we also met in book one- being the best friend of Allison, is the best realtor in the area- and is who Trent calls to help off load his Uncle’s estate. These two have some recent history- so the spark between them doesn’t take much to reignite. Add threats, sinister and creepy vibes, danger, drama- and a whole lot of steam… and this story just wouldn’t let me put it down.
This story could be read as a standalone, as each book in the series focuses on a different couple. But having said that, I really recommend reading the three books together, as there are recurring characters to meet- as well as fantastic storylines that you would miss out on otherwise.
As I have mentioned many, many times previously- I have developed a severe addiction to Ms. Pulkinen’s stories- but it’s an addiction that I am more than happy to indulge- so, no rehab needed!
Highly recommended for all paranormal romance lovers!
Thank you, Carrie Pulkinen!
